Learn more about how big data and spatial analytics can inform crime prediction, risk reduction, and crime prevention at the International Conference on Crime Risk Analysis occurring June 6 – 7 in Elche, Spain, and hosted by Rutgers University Center on Public Security. Featuring researchers, practitioners and policy-makers from policing, public health, and more, the conference aims to provide actionable takeaways using risk terrain modeling and risk-based policing.
Learn how the spatial dynamics of crime are not the same in different settings, how police know whether they’ve made a difference, and more.
More on Risk Terrain Modeling and Risk-Based Policing
Risk-Terrain Modeling: Crime Prediction and Risk Reduction by Joel M. Caplan and Leslie W. Kennedy
“Risk terrain modeling has truly opened up a new way of mapping crime. Police officers, researchers, crime mappers, and analysts will find new keys and new means to act at the microplace against crime.”—Jean-Luc Besson, Geostatistician at the French National Supervisory Body on Crime and Punishment, Professor, National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts, Paris 2 University
“Risk terrain modeling is arguably the most significant advancement in spatial crime analysis this past decade. This is a book that should be required reading for researchers, policy makers, and practitioners interested in crime risk reduction.”—Martin A. Andresen, Professor, School of Criminology, Simon Fraser University, Canada
Risk-Based Policing: Evidence-Based Crime Prevention with Big Data and Spatial Analytics by Leslie W. Kennedy, Joel M. Caplan, and Eric L. Piza
“Full of practical examples, this book is a perfect guide for academics, policy makers, and practitioners interested in deepening or applying this innovative approach.” —Marco Dugato, Senior Researcher at TRANSCRIME and Adjunct Professor at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore
“Progressive police chiefs should add this book to their shelves if they want to understand the value of how risk terrain modeling fits into the evidence-based framework of policing. An effective and efficient approach to reducing and preventing crime.” —Renée J. Mitchell, President of the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing
